Brendini - 2004-04-14

man that's hard to keep up with. how did you tab that?


angel_of_God - 2004-04-17

that is very confusing!!!!!how did you come up with that?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!


christnskater2 - 2004-05-21

this is actually pretty good. easy to play. I just need to speed up a bit.


thafilapino - 2004-06-06

eh man, pretty good, but where's the rest of the song man? the intro is cool and all but it needs the rest. but what you did tab sounds good.


irunforfun - 2004-06-07

Wow, I heard this on the cd and thought, "Man I wish I could play that." Well, now it's possible and not as hard as I thought. Awesome tab!


playinthesnow87 - 2004-08-04

dudeman, this is awesome. it makes it so much easier to play, and i thought i'd never figure it out.


gsusfreke - 2004-08-21

dude, that rocks!!


pistolpete - 2004-08-24

Who!!!!


jesussffreek - 2004-10-05

ok someone asked about the rest of the song, some parts i think are just variations of the chords used in the intro, and the rest are just variations of little riffs in the intro, i think...

iamthemetalking - 2004-10-15

Your right, dude...throughout the song it is just the pieces of the intro you tabbed, played at different timings, or sometimes just played the exact same. if your good enough to play this, your probably good enough to figure out what pieces go where, or if you want, do what i do, and improvise throughout the song, that sounds good to!


Phonix - 2004-11-05

i ALWAYS wanted to learn this SONG! thx a lot its really cool... you mustve took ages to learn that...well its taken me ages now :)

jamforchrist123 - 2005-02-09

Dude, I Can't Imagine How Long It Took To Tab This!


packers93 - 2005-02-10

I NEED THE CHORDS


Meloosh - 2005-02-13

I just have to tell you tanks for posting this song, you don't no how happy I was when I found it. I been battling the music of the world a lot and trying to stay away from it, and it's almost impossible for me. So finally I start listening to air1 once in awhile. But I still always play rockn'roll. so finally I just decide to listen to Jesus, and delete all my music files. Next thing I know I hear this song and think like it had some pretty challenging riffs, so I was happy to find a tab that was accurate, when I first found it I was thinking it was just going to be the chords, but it's good it was the intro. Know I just gota throw away my Clapton CD. God Bless.


Strumming4Jesus - 2005-03-08

Dude!
yeah i agree! could someone get the chords...i guess u could try Em, B..
i dont know...somewhere along the lines of that..anywaz

Rocking for Mi Cristo!

Strumming4Jesus - 2005-03-08

aww man...scratch those earlier...didnt line up


mmggppmgp - 2005-03-11

wowzers... nice tab... hey yall pls post ur tips on how to play faster and tips on how to build finger strength this song needs a lot of that... lol


mmggppmgp - 2005-03-12

after workin on it for several hours ... i can finnally play it... all but that part with the hammer on/pull offs between 5 7 8th frets of e string and B string... thing think is i know its fast but like its seems like there is a little too much notes on ur tab... but other than that this tab is really rocking


iluvm@thiessen - 2005-03-16

I salute you for tabbing this, I would be afraid to try! :) thanks!


matt j t - 2005-03-23

what's a tremolo pick?


bwd4god - 2005-03-25

a tremolo pick is like when you go up and down on that chord realy realy fast you know how they do in like the old spanish songs with the guitars


matt j t - 2005-03-26

thanks!


mmggppmgp - 2005-03-28

dude its pretty coool... i can play it now but that crazy hammer on n pull of... so i put it in my mixer to check the accurace n it was good


musicmatt112590 - 2005-04-01

musicmatt112590 - 2005-04-01

sk8n-52 - 2005-04-07

great tab you got an ear for tabing


musicmatt112590 - 2005-04-15

You mean me? Thanx! I really do enjoy it, I'd like to be in a band like ApologetiX that does other people's songs all the time.


musicmatt112590 - 2005-04-15

Or were you talking about the guy who did this tab? I thought you meant the tab that I did that has the chords.


XxJesusFreakxX - 2005-05-04

Hey Man I give u mad props for that tab but on the cs it sounds impossible but the tabs are really easy if ur ne good at the guitar & good at the picking & stuff...but hey man u did an Awesome job.......

-XxJesusFreakxX


matt j t - 2005-05-21

hey could someone figure out "Phenomenon"

thanks!


matt j t - 2005-06-01

oh....and....could someone figure out "The Slam"


DeJo - 2005-06-10

Hey! I'm lovin' all the comments that are like "dude!" on this comment thing. I'm a "dudette" so I don't know if this will work for you dudes, with your big fingers, hopefully it will because it's much easier! I've figured the second line slightly different. The only thing I don't know how to depict is this: the first "chord" (8-10-7 on GBE) is played bottom note to top, quickly, but separate enough to NOT be a chord. Listen to the song, you'll get it!

E--7--14---12-12\-----------7-8-7--8/12--12t--10--8------
B--10------13-13\-13-13----------------------------------
G--8-------14-14\-14-14-14-------------------------------
D-----------------14-14-14-------------------------------
A-----------------------12-------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------

God bless you & the talents He gave you.
With them, may you serve Him well.

scout152 - 2007-05-15

wow, this is a great tab. you don't suppose you could tab the intro to "Lose My Soul" off of Portable Sounds could you? Now THAT would be next to impossible. (not that this tab isn't)


Rapador17 - 2008-03-10

pureredwhiteblu - 2009-11-22

B----------------5-7-8---------------------12-13-12-10-12-10----------------
G--------------4---------------------------------------------12-11-12-11-9--
D----------4-5--------------------------------------------------------------
A------2/7------------------------------------------------------------------
E--0-3----------------------------------------------------------------------


I play this...

Intro:
E-------------------------7/12-14-15-14-12-11-12--------------------------------
B------------------------------------------------12-13-12-10-12-10---10---------
G-----------------9-11-12h(2x)-------------------------------------12---12-11s--
D----------------9--------------------------------------------------------------
A-----2/7--9-10h---------------------------------------------------------------
E-0-3--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Intro:
E--------------------------14---12--12--- ** Then the rest as tabbed
B--------------------10-12------13--13--- in previous post **
G--11-12h-11p--9-8s-------------14--14---
